Rock Church Academy (RCA) was founded in 1979. Rock Church Academy is an extension ministry of the Rock Church of Petersburg, VA. RCA began on Cedar Heart Lane in Dinwiddie County, VA. As our ministry continued to grow we then moved into our current facility at 2301 County Drive in Petersburg, VA. Many locals remember this property as Petersburg's "Old Drive-In movie theater". Our facility features well-designed classrooms and a full-size gymnasium and playground. The schools purpose was and still is to provide a Christian environment conducive for learning. Isaiah 54:13, admonishes us “And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children”.
Since its beginning, RCA has striven to provide quality education in a loving, Christian environment. RCA utilizes the excellent ABEKA curriculum coupled with Bob Jones University Press and Purposeful Design textbooks. Over the past 30 years, RCA has ministered and impacted the lives of countless students. It has seen over 100 graduates, many of which have gone on to live fruitful lives in the kingdom of God, as well as, professional careers.
